« Part 4: 1st peek at Log Cat Trees Part 5 of Yellow & White Birch Logs series Part 6: Or what I'm waiting to do! »

I decided to make a matching Log Bed for my Black Lab today,( My Daughter came By and said I have to much time on my hands). I still have lots of odds and ends from this last Log harvest so,... why not. This of course is for camp.
I decided to use construction adhesive instead of glue for the dowels, I think it will fill the voids and be much stronger since no screws are used.
I will use sisal rope as the mattress frame support (Good thing shes past chewing on stuff)

As with the other projects I scribed and doweled the joints for IMO a much cleaner fit.

I’ll throw in a pic of the Bed frame stained and sealed with 3 coats of tung oil.
